Accurate Home Video Info for this Anime
14 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Another reviewer mentioned that this film known as The Adventures of Sinbad the Sailor was ONLY available on at 76mins Faded VHS Version from16mm Print. This is NOT the case. Probably a Cheap-o Tape like that does exist. But most likely what the reviewer saw was a copy and not the original. This Original Release was in fact distributed in the 80's by MGM/UA Home Video with the F.H.E. Video Label ( family home entertainment ). It is the full length version of the film with both great picture, color, and sound. The video box title is The Adventures of Sinbad the Sailor. The Screen Title credit on the video is Adventures of Sindbad. TOEI Animation was famous for the retelling of classics myths and tales for the international market. This feature was produced in 1962 then released to US TV via MGM in around 1975. The runtime on the F.H.E. video release is 87mins in length. - So, the uncut version for all to enjoy does indeed exist. I would hate to think that someone would give up looking for this film after the previous comments from another reviewer. Although, the video does exist. It is still hard to find - the generic title does not help with the search - If you plug in Adventures of Sinbad on for example amazon this film will not be listed. Neither will other TOEI Films on videos even though many titles were released through major home video labels like MEDIA - RCA - MAGIC WINDOW - and F.H.E. perhaps others as well. Even SONY home video release a TOEI short titled HONEY, HONEY. You will find it hard to search for many of these TOEI films with generic "farietale" Titles like ALADDIN AND THE WONDERFUL LAMP and AESOP'S FABLES. You'll need to sift through a ton of other children's videos with these titles that are NOT the Japanese Produced Anime style from TOEI. Besides the amazing animation techniques of this period it is also the music that sets the film apart from other children's animation features, especially US produced animation. That's basically a search tip for this film which is well worth the effort and most TOEI Anime films will be.
